The Office of Human Resource prides itself in offering a full, competitive benefits package with providers, who we feel, will offer the best service possible to the employees. With the help of our benefits consultant, Lockton Companies; the state of Missouri with the Missouri State Employee Retirement System (MOSERS) and Central Accident Reporting Office (CARO); and Gatekeeper 403(b) Administration & Consulting we are confident you will receive the support, education, and answers that you need to make decisions.

To be eligible for benefits, employees must be hired in a permanent position of at least nine months and an FTE appointment of .75 or higher.

Benefit coverage is effective the first of the month following the hire date and employees have an initial enrollment period (30 days) to enroll in insurance plans.
Open Enrollment for all insurance plans is held annually November-December with an effective date of January 1st.
